Welcome to the Italian Genealogical Group (IGG)

The Italian Genealogical Group is dedicated to promoting Italian family history and genealogy. We are a non-profit organization that operates strictly because of member efforts.

Our goal is to empower you in your search for family records by providing the necessary tools and expertise needed.

We are happy to expand our membership and would love to have you as one of our members. If you are interested in researching your Italian heritage, please join us.

Our Bethpage chapter meets on the second Saturday of each month from September to June. Visitors are always welcome.  

Our next meeting is November 11th. Mr. Carlo Magaletti will talk to us about his documentary, "The Barese Icemen of New York", and explain to us why these Apulia migrants came to dominate the ice market in the United States and whyniche occupations developed similarly by region. Assistance is available for beginning and advanced researchers at 9:30 AM. 

The IGG invites you to your First Cemetery stroll!

There's still time to register for this event. The Cemetery Stroll will be led by Jo Ann Schmidt, a genealogy and cemetery enthusiast. We will meet on Sunday, October 22 at 10:45AM at the gates of Cypress Hills Cemetery, 833 Jamaica Avenue, Brooklyn, NY.

We will tour the grounds of this very special cemetery together. We will discuss monuments, symbolism and the residents of the first non-sectarian cemetery in the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens, which was established in 1848! The "strole" will be two hours long.

This event is free for IGG members, but please make your cemetery "reservations" in advance by emailing Jo Ann at:  Familystalker50@gmail.com

IGG's annual Christmas Party will be at Filomena's Italian Restaurant in Franklin Square on Saturday, December 9 at 12:30. See our Newsletter for more details.
